Decoding Michelle Bachman

Michelle Bachman, congresswoman from Minnesota, appeared on Hardball the other night calling for an investigation of all the members of Congress to see who has "pro-" and "anti-" American sentiments. Trying to salvage what is left of her career she released this commercial.
Once again our nation is at a crossroads and it's a time for choosing. We could embrace government as the answer to our problems or we could choose freedom and liberty. I may not always get my words right, but I know that my heart is right, because my heart is for you, for your children, and for the blessing of liberty to remain for our great country. I'm Michelle Bachman and I approve this message.
First, there's the crossroads, and a time for choosing. Consider 2 Corinthians 6:2
Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.
It's critical that you choose her now, as the end is nigh.

Second, consider her comment about government as an answer to our problems. Christians depend on God alone. The only purpose for government is forcing God's law on unbelievers. Consider 1 Peter 5:7,
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
Then there's, "My heart is right," religious code for "My heart is right with God." In other words, she's saying that she meant everything she said and is offering this faux apology for "the world," and remains true to every vile and nasty thing she accidentally revealed to the secular among us.

There's no verse for this, but "getting your heart right with God" is common usage among Christians. Type it into teh Google and see.

Christians know these verses by heart. Bachman's speech was aimed directly at her Christian constituents. She walked a tightrope between placating them and appearing to apologize to the godless. This kind of deception is approved by Bachman, and by Christians. Lying is fine as long as it's for Jesus, unborn babies, and against the homos and blacks.

Here's one verse with which Bachman may not be familiar,
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
John 8:44 (King James Version)
